The skeletal system

What did we do?.....................................................................................................................................................................................................

Organs found in the Skeletal System:1) bones-rigid organs that make up the skeletonProtects2) ligaments-fibrous tissues that connect one bone to another, creating a joint3) tendons-made up of a fibrous tissue and connects muscles to the bones3) cartilage-type of flexible connective tissue that portects the bones and helps to form body parts (ex. ears and nose)

The skeletal system is a system of bones and has many components to it, some which include the skull, rib cage, pectoral, pelvis, and the upper and lower limb. The skeleton is an important part of the body; it gives the body shape and support, and without the skeleton, the body would collapse into a heap. Aside from giving us shape, the skeleton protects internal organs and fragile body tissues, including the brain, eyes, heart, lungs, and spinal cord. There are more than 300 bones in the skeleton of a newborn and 206 bones in an adult's.

What?

Method

1) Muscular system-allows movements for the body. The joint is the point where the muscles and bones connect, which enable us to move around, acting like levers in our body. What connects the muscles and bones are tendons, a form of connective tissue that is continuous with muscle fiber.2) Nervous system-is composed of the brain, spinal cor,d, and sensory organs, which are responsible for controlling the muscles in the body and tells the skeletal muscles what to do.

Connections

Osteoporosis-bone disease common among the elderly and causes the loss of bone tissue. The bone loses calcium, which causes it to become thinner and thinner, ultimately disappearing completely.Scoliosis-disorder that causes the spine to create a "C" or "S" shape curve and is typically evident during adolescence.

Discussion Questions1) What part of the skeletal system creates the joint?2) Why is the skeletal system an important part of our body?
